With quarterback looking to be more and more a priority next season, Dan Mullen's Mississippi State Bulldogs will be looking all over the south for the next signal caller to go after.
One of the early candidates for that spot is 2013 prospect Eddie Printz of Lassiter High School in Marietta, Ga.
Printz and some of his teammates recently got a chance to visit Starkville and came away very impressed. While he isn't sure when it will be, he knows that he will be going back to camp with the Bulldogs.
"Theres a lot to like about Mississippi State," Printz said. "The facilities are top notch. The coaches are great as well. I really like the way that they develop their quarterbacks. It was really easy to get along good with all their coaches. I got to go see the dorms and all the other facilities. They really took good care of me and all my teammates. I will make sure they are one of the schools I camp with next year."
Another one of the schools on Printz's radar got a chance to visit with him up close recently. Printz and his mom took a trip down to Gainsville to check out the Florida Gators.
"I got up at 6 a.m. and got to watch practice," Printz said. "I got to check out all the facilities and visit the Swamp. They had beautiful facilities. I got to sit in on a meeting with the skill players and the quarterbacks. Then they gave me and my mom a tour of the campus. After that we met up with Coach Weis and Coach Muschamp. It was a fun day."
Mississippi State, Florida, South Carolina, Duke, Alabama, Tennessee, LSU, Kentucky, and Vanderbilt are just everal schools are after Printz already. Although he is not ready to make a decision yet, Printz has an idea of when he would like to make his choice.
"I would really like to have my mind made up the summer before my senior season," Printz said. "I am going to hit all the schools I like hard and have my choice made by then."
